About 20th Century American Antique & Vintage Quilts

At the start of the 20th century, dark colors were very prevalent in the quilts.  American society was deeply affected both by the losses of the Civil War and the cultural trend begun in England by a mourning Queen Victoria.  Darkness continued through the devastation of World War I.  However, by the mid 1920s, quilt colors changed from the somber blacks and browns of mourning to a more cheerful palette of pastels made possible by advances in newer dyes. During the 1920s, a huge array of solid and calico fabrics was created, celebrating the vibrancy of that decade.  With the stock market crash of 1928, those same cheerful colors would become one of the very few ways women could brighten their homes during the hard times to come.

Our collection of 20th century antique quilts and vintage quilts range from the early 1900s to the 1950s, include Log Cabin, Double Wedding Ring, Grandmothers's Flower Garden and other patterns, are perfect for adding a cheerful focal point to any home.

Q8928 Whole Cloth Quilt
Q8928 Whole Cloth Quilt
c. 1928
78 x 80
Midwest
$1,400

The term "whole cloth" means repeats of the same fabric sewn together to give the illusion of one large piece of fabric. Usually when you see such a happening the quilter wanted to show off her quilting ability. With the solid fabrics this quilt is perfect for a room with many different complicated fabrics. This turquoise green color typifies one of the 1920’s palates. A wonderful attribute of this quilt is that it is turquoise green on one side and yellow on the other, creating a completely reversible quilt... therefore actually two quilts in one. A sociological clue to this quilt is that it had to be made from purchased fabric - so perhaps from a family with discretionary income. The beauty of this quilt is, as mentioned, the graphic quilting. It includes a chain stitched design outer border, cross hatching 3/4” apart and a center medallion wreath. The edging is pillow cased. I’m conjecturing when I say this was created by a women who likes to quilt rather than piece. In perfect unused condition. Organically hand washed and ready for your home.

Ohio
$1,900

Wow, is this a graphic quilt ..as well as stunning and dynamic! This , what appears to be unused, quilt is comprised of only two solid color fabrics; a mustard and a white.

Q9221 Amish Star of Bethlehem
c.1925
82 x 86 inches
Pennsylvania
$2,900

This amazing Star of Bethlehem Amish Quilt is one of the most exquisitily created Stars I have ever seen. Gazing at this quilt, while it was hanging, I am drawn into the center of the quilt, almost in an optical illusion way. This piece of art looks as if it's pulsating. Comprised of the entire array of colors of Amish clothing fabrics that were unused....the quilt is unused condition. I was the first person to wash it. The quilting stitches are some of the tiniest I’ve seen in my 32 years of business. The background is off-white and there are a couple of brown (clean) spots. These spots are from the cotton hulls from the inside batting. If I had washed it any longer, the rich off-white color would have brightened, so I decided to stop the washing. If someone wants the very tiny spots negated, then I can do so..organically...however the background color will also lighten. Each diamond side measures 2”. All piecing is done by machine, as is typical of Amish quilts. There is a 3/8” binding in the same off-white fabric. The 4-1/2” border has an unusual stacked leaf quilting. This quilt is large enough for a queen size bed or an unbelievable statement on your great room wall. Organically hand washed and ready to be sent for your approval.

CONDS4 Amish Bars with Corner Squares
c.1900
75 x 82 inches
Lancaster County, Pennsylvania
$4,900

This exquisite Lancaster County Bars Corner Blocks Amish quilt is a relatively early piece dating from c.1900. The wool crepe and the colors are indeed both relatively early. I say relatively early as my quilts for sale date back to 1780. Colors are personal. I happen to really like the ones used here; ochre, rust red and medium blue. The backing is late 19th century muted gray checks. Lancaster County Amish woman would use a print, otherwise called English Fabric, for the backing. This quilt is comprised of a 1-1/8” binding, 11-1/2” outer border and a 2-3/4” inner border which circumvents the bars. The outer border has an unusual criss crossing wreath pattern, and the blue that encircles the bars has a chevron and windmill quilting pattern. The bars themselves are diagonally cross hatched in a 7/8” grid. The corner boxes are quilted with a basket motif. There are a very few areas with muted color loss. We have noted these in the closeup photos. This amazing quilt is ready to be sent for you approval.

CONDS1 Amish Triple Irish Chain with Folk Art Border
c.1945
84 x 87 inches
New England
$4,600

A chance to own, what seems to be, a one of a kind Amish quilt. This stunning Amish Triple Irish Chain quilt has been perfectly created from 1-1/2” squares and edged with a 4-1/4" border on two sides and a 1-1/4” edging on the other two sides. The very edge, all around the quilt, is finished with a 7/8" strip. The folky and unusual Amish tabs, on the outside of the quilt, measure 1-1/8" in height and 2-1/8” in width. Having an original design Amish quilt is a true oxymoron going outside the norm of their culture. I’ve looked everywhere to find another quilt similar to this one, only to no avail. Machine pieced, as Amish quilts were, and hand quilted, this whimsical Irish chain is made from all the variety of solid cotton fabrics worn by the Amish at this time. The quilt feels spontaneous and happy. This quilt will fit a queen size bed with a 12” drop or a king bed with the tabs going over the top edge. This quilt is truly a major piece of art for your bed or wall. Even though there’s a lot of quilting, the stitches are not small and even as with most Amish pieces. Is it possible that these quilting stitches may have been done by a child? Organically washed and ready for your home. Always sent on approval.

Q8705 Blue and White Floral and Vine Applique
c.1930
75 x 88 inches
Ohio
$1,400

In perfect unused condition, this beautifully appliquéd and quilted c.1930 Floral and Vine Appliqué Quilt is what is known as a kit quilt. The manufacturer of a kit quilt would send the fabric which is pre-stamped with the quilting pattern and where to place the applique or pieced work and ready to do the creative hand work. All the fabric needed was always included with the kit. This quilt was one of a pair. The other quilt was undoubtedly used on a bed and therefore worn. This quilt appears to have never been used and was either on the unused bed or maybe the bedroom only had a single bed in it. As indicative of the era this wonderful quilt was created using cotton batting, fabric and thread. Originally created as a twin quilt with a pillow tuck and now because of the quilt's length can be turned to fit a queen size bed with a 4” overhang. Organically hand washed and ready to send on approval.

CONLL1 Amish Diamond in the Square
c.1910
80 x 80 inches
Lancaster County, PA
$7,200

This is a quintessential Lancaster County Amish Quilt. When you ask any lover of Amish quilts what is the quilt they must own, most will say A Diamond in a Square. This early rendition has been created from wool crepe and always from their specific clothing colors. Amish quilts are machine pieced and then exquisitely hand quilted. This piece is no exception. The backing is a late 19th century stripe. It’s acceptable for a stripe to be on the back of the quilt but never on the front as that would look pretentious and not a fabric they would wear. The outside binding is the typical 1” width, the next border is 11-1/2” and quilted with wreaths and stars. The inner border is 4-3/4” in width. The outer block is rich purplish blue, followed by rose, magenta and slate blue. The inner corner triangles are quilted with vines of grapes and tulips. The inner most border is quilted in a modified herringbone and pinwheel. The center diamond in a square has an 7 pointed star, triple line quilted and surrounded by a beautifully quilted wreath. Each corner has a quilted design 6 pointed star. This sophisticated and naturally simple Amish quilt is a major piece of art for your wall or will fit a queen size bed. Ready to send on approval. Please remember that colors aren’t exact when seen on your computer.

Q8325 Dresden Plate Quilt
c.1928
82 x 94 inches
Winchester, MA
$1,800

It is extremely rare to find a c.1928 quilt that is large enough to fit a king size bed. Amazingly this quilt would fit a single, double, queen or king depending on how you turn it. Constructed from blocks, this would have been blocks that the creator could have taken with her wherever she went . The Dresden Plate itself is actually a miniature Dresden Plate pattern. The pattern was copied from china plates made in Dresden, Germany. These quilt blocks are apx 10 1/2 x 10 1/2”, the sashing, between and around the blocks, measures 2” in width, the border is apx 4 1/4” and the binding ,finished by hand, measures 3/8” in width. All piecing is executed by hand including attaching all sashing. Each square uses echo quilting ,usually found on Hawaiian quilts. In addition each piece in the block is outline quilted. The maker of this quilt was proficient enough to do tiny even stitches. The sashing between the blocks is quilted in a rope with leaf design. The border has a mirror image , in a larger scale, of the same pattern. Again, the quilting stitches are tiny and even. Perfect unused condition. Organically hand washed by Betsey and ready to be seen on approval.

c.1928
72 x 86 inches
Texas
$1,400, Sale: $900

This quilt has three names, all applicable to this pattern. Both hand and machine quilted with so much quilting as to look stippled. The piecing of this quilt is comprised solely of diamonds, each with 2-3/4 inch sides. The construction format is one I’ve never seen before, made up of strips 17 inches wide x 71 inches long. Five strips are sewn together to create a quilt that measures 72 x 86. The fact that this quilt does not have a top or a bottom means it can be turned in either direction and will therefore fit a single, double or queen size bed. The binding on the front measures 3/8 inch tuned over to the back where it measures 1 inch wide giving the quilt edging added protection. Not only is this quilt an optical illusion, graphic and stunning, but the stippling adds another dimension with is fully appreciated when hung. Unused condition and organically hand washed by Betsey and ready for a new home.

Q6404 Rose Applique Quilt
c.1940
72 x 88 inches
New England
Original Price: $1,100
Sale Price: $650

Because of the large dimensions and the fact that this quilt can be used in either direction, it will fit a single, double or queen size bed. Completely appliquéd and quilted by hand with a pillowcase, slightly scalloped edging, also finished by hand. An exquisite center medallion has been executed on this quilt. To obtain a kit quilt, someone would send away to one of the cotton batting manufacturers and purchase a pre-stamped top, a backing and all the pieces to execute a beautiful quilt. Usually but not always, these kits were appliqué kit quilts. I’m not sure if this quilt was never used, but it was certainly hardly used. When one looks closely, one can still see the blue dots to follow for quilting. There is an alluring array of quilting patterns seen on this piece. Some include wreaths, other wreaths circling the quilt and quilting that mirrors the bows. Nicely executed, and as a crowning touch, todays colors are seen here. Coming from New England, professionally hand washed by Betsey and ready for a new home.

CONLL4 Amish Nine Patch Quilt
c.1915
72 x 72 inches
Lancaster County, PA
$6,500

We are aware that color combinations from the Amish quilts are unique to the Amish since they’re from the limited scope of the colors of their clothing. Comprised of both wool and cotton, this 9 Patch Quilt design is taken to another level due to the 4 corner blocks on the outer and inner borders...only found on Lancaster Amish quilts.. The typical 1” wide binding is an olive green wool which is also used in the creation of the 9 patch blocks. The outer border measures 10-1/2” in width and has a very Lancaster County floral wreath design quilted in all the blue sections. The corner blocks are quilted in a bouquet design held with ribbon. The next border measures 4” in width and quilted the same the way. Each of the 4 corner squares in the inner border are quilted with the same floral design. The main body of the 9 patch has been quilted in a 1-3/8” cross hatch pattern. All piecing has been done by machine and the entire quilt is hand quilted with small even stitches. The backing is a solid pumpkin colored cotton....the Amish could use fabrics different from their clothing for the backs of their quilts. The rust and lavender fabrics are cotton and all the green fabric is wool. Quilts are always sent on approval..

Q8493 Amish original design, Jacob's Ladder Variation Quilt
c.1935
78 x 78 inches
Lancaster, PA
$1,600

This special and unusual Amish quilt is in unused condition. Created from the fabrics that would have been used for the young boy's blue and young girl's pink clothing. This quilt is a unique adaptation using squares, rectangles and sashing to create a variation of the Jacob's Ladder pattern.
The diagonal sashing measures 4” in width. In addition we have have two 3” squares on point, four patch blocks joined by a 4 x 2-5/8 x 2-5/8 triangle. These triangles butt with a block measuring apx 5 x 5” with either the blues joined together or the pinks joined together to form rectangles. This block is the joining block of where the sashings intersect. The large blocks between the sashes measure apx 11-1/2 x 11-1/2”. The center of each square on point is apx 4” square and made up of 4 triangles. The outside of each square is a 4 patch in different layouts.
I have never seen anything like this which is why I am giving an unusually complete description. The creator was a graphic artist using blocks that were simple to piece. The outside border measures 6-1/2” with a 3/4” binding. All seams are machine pieced, typical of an Amish quilt, and the binding is put on by machine then secured in back by hand. The triangles are outline quilted, the squares diagonally quilted and the outside border has chain quilting all around. Two different colors of thread are used. Blue on the blue, and reddish pink on the pink. These quilting thread colors are more noticeable on the back.

The creator had edged this coverlet with a 3” pink border surrounding the off white main fabric. The colors used in this folk art piece are typical for the 1920s and 1930s.

CONGG2 Wool Amish Diamond in a Square
c.1900
77 x 79 inches
Lancaster, Pennsylvania
$2,600

This truly magnificent Diamond in a Square is quintessential Lancaster Amish...We know this because of the corner squares. Shown here are some of the most elaborate and unusual quilting designs that I have ever seen on an Amish quilt. The center diamond on point measures apx 27 x 27” with a radiating center LaMoyne star surrounded by an elaborately quilted wreath design. In between each section of the Ohio or LaMoyne star, there are quilted 4 cloverleaf designs. The triangles surrounding the square are quilted in outlines of beautiful tulips, stems, meandering vines and buds. All quilting is done in slightly contrasting thread. The outside border measures 14-1/2” with the quilt finished with a 1-1/2” flat binding... also typical Amish.

The inside border measures 5-3/4” and contains a meandering grape vine with grapes and leaves. The 4 corner blocks are apx 13-1/2” square and have meandering vine quilted in the shape of a horseshoe. The back fabric is a beige flannel with a floral block print. All Amish quilts are treadle machine pieced and hand quilted. Because the material on the front is all wool, there are places where moths have been... some of the holes have been reverse appliquéd...This, to me, is character, and has resulted in a wonderful price for this amazing textile. Ready to be sent to you for viewing and approval.

A very old Amish quilt or a piece of Modern Art ?

This Lancaster County Amish Trip Around the World is both brilliant and dynamic. The selection of colors seem to draw one's sight towards the center of the textile. A full array of colors used in children's clothing is used here along with a few of the adult clothing colors. Created from wool crepe and cottons, it appears that this quilt has never been used. The squares measure 3-1/2”, the outside border measures 16” in width (including a 2” binding). The border is quilted in a design of a bouquet of flowers held together by ribbon. A most unusual quilting pattern. The piecing is done with a treadle machine while quilting is executed by hand in small and even stitches. This combination of quilting methods is typical of the Amish. Cross hatching has been created in a 1" diagonal grid resulting in an “x” quilted through each square. The four corner squares measure 14-1/2” and visually let us know that this quilt was definitely created in Lancaster County. Ready for viewing on approval in your home. This quilt will make an amazing statement on your wall or used as bedding.

Q9019 Double Wedding Ring Quilt
c.1928
72 x 74 inches
New England
$1,600

Completely unusual is the way I would describe this wedding Ring quilt.....I have never seen this quilt pattern comprised using a combination of these fabrics. The 4 joining squares are 2” and created from a check pattern of off white with two shades of blue. The pieces in the ring are 2" by 1" at the top and 3/4” at the bottom. This entire quilt is hand pieced and extensively hand quilted. All parts of the rings are outline quilted. The binding is applied by hand and finished in the same manner. The center of each ring is quilted in a "baseball" pattern....once again something I have never seen on a quilt. This quilting design along with the blue plaid joining blocks and the choice of other fabrics lead me to believe that a Mother created this quilt for her son as a wedding present.

Double wedding rings are traditionally comprised of calicos. This quilt is pieced using checks, stripes and a few solid fabrics. A one of a kind Double Wedding Ring quilt in an era where most depression era quilters made this pattern. Lovingly created by a woman who had originality and did not follow the pack. Organically hand washed and ready to be sent for your approval.

Happy and perky would be the way I describe this center medallion appliqué quilt. I believe this is a kit quilt, however, I’ve been unable to locate the company that distributed it. This quilt has been appliquéd using some of the tiniest stitches I have ever seen. The light and dark purple grapes have been stuffed. All applique work including the grapes, leaves and vines are outline quilted. The beautifully quilted center medallion shows a display of clusters of quilted grapes and leaves. There are only 4 solid colored fabrics used in the creation of this quilt, making it an easy addition to any home using these colors. The appliqued vines range from 1/8" to 1/4” in diameter while the grapes are 3/4” in diameter. Diagonal quilting radiates out from the center in 1-1/8” grids. The direction of the grid quilting draws one's eye into the center and the beautiful medallion. A quilt fit for a queen size bed with 6-1/2” overhang on each side. A stunning addition for a summer home or any environment that is bright and cheery. In perfect and what appears to be unused condition, this quilt has been organically washed and is ready to be sent for your viewing and approval.

$1,900

This Postage Stamp Trip Around the World is comprised of over 4200 1” squares and is absolutely mind boggling for the amount of precise and graphically perfect piecing in this quilt. :-) There are over 40 different fabrics, solids and calicos, all pieced and quilted meticulously by hand. The border is wonderfully finished with prairie points and pillowcase edged. The quilting is wonderfully executed. Because of the 80" size this amazing quilt will fit a queen size bed or completely cover the top of a king size bed. As you can see, this quilt is also a major piece of art for a wall in your home. Where there is not an actual top or bottom, you can hang it either way. The direction it’s shown here, vertically, adds height to the room. If you want to add width to a room, you’d hang it the other way. In perfect, unused condition. Organically washed by Betsey and ready for your viewing. I’m happy to send it on approval.

CONCLK1 Folk Art Wool Crazy Quilt
Dated 1904
60 x 78 inches
West Virginia
$4,800

I will classify this original folk art Crazy Quilt as “off the charts”! It’s spectacular! This quilt is truly a piece of art. Comprised of 12 20” square blocks, using fabrics that are mostly 1890’s wool and wool challis. The backing is 1880’s - 90’s flannel thus creating not only a warm, but a very cozy quilt. Much of the embellishment on this quilt is three dimensional. There are a lot of unanswered questions on this piece. I have a feeling it was made by Grandma, whose initials may have been V.B.M. Many of the blocks are initialed. Does this mean that many people made a block or were the blocks made in their honor? There is a similar style so I believe it was made by one person, however that is up for discussion. One block has 5 sets of initials all ending in M. Could this be Gandma's children or grandchildren? This major piece of textile folk art can be hung in either direction. If you want to rotate it, you’ll see a totally different piece of art work. This is such a happy quilt. I think the creator must have adored her family. Ready to be sent for your approval at home.

A very happy feeling comes along with these cute and perky miniature basket quilts. These quilts are comprised of apx 5-1/2” baskets on point. Even though they are a pair one measures 50 x 93” and the other 50 x 92”....One inch different... Believed to be created by an Amish woman. I say this because it was found in PA and the colors and fabrics are the same as Amish children’s clothing. Also, they are pieced by machine and quilted by hand - typical of the Amish. The top of a twin bed is 39” which would leave about 6” overhang on each side. Twin quilts are hard to find. Both are in perfect unused condition. Organically washed and ready for your home.

Q9097 Americana Folk Art Center Medallion Eagle Quilt
Dated 1962
67 x 89 inches
Found in New England
SOLD

This is definitely folk art. When I purchased this quilt, judging from the fabrics, I thought it was a 1940’s World War II commemorative piece. It wasn’t until I got it home and washed it that I found the embroidered date Dec 1962. This is one of the two newest quilts I have ever purchased... the other one an original African American quilt. The center medallion eagle is a copy from a 19th century quilt. I have sold 2 or 3 of the original quilts. This one is a 20th century rendition. The words "The Americana" is embroidered in the center block. All embroidery and appliqué is done by hand. The 1/4” binding is applied by hand with the same fabric used to create the 5” border. The piecing is done by machine. You can’t take this quilt too literally, especially with 60 stars on each flag. However, it is a fun piece of folk art. This quilt organically washed and ready to see on approval.

New England
$525

Happy, happy, happy :-). This is the best way I can describe this quilt top. As a result of the foundation pieceing, this quilt top doesn’t need to be quilted, only tied. The basic block is a 7” crazy quilt diamond. Then 11 plus diamonds are put together to create a strip 75” long. The next step was 14 of these strips sewn together to created this top. The foundation piecing was done by hand. The blocks and strips were then sewn by machine giving you a sturdy piece to work with. No matter what your depression era color scheme is, those colors are going to be on this quilt top. All of the fabrics on this quilt top are unused. It appears that these were scraps left over from whatever this seamstress was making. The two end rows are solid pieces of fabric instead of being pieced in a crazy quilt manner. This creates two borders for the quilt top. This top can be used in any direction. The photo shows the direction that looks (to my eye) the best when hanging. In unused ...unwashed condition...to be sent for your approval..

One of the three most popular mid century and Depression era quilts was the Grandmother’s Flower Garden, an adaptation of the mid 19th century Mosaic Pattern. This is one pattern that could not be created by machine, but was always done by hand, due to the shape of the pieces being hexagons. We have a pair of unused Grandmother's Flower Garden quilts, which are extre long because they were made for twin sized beds with a pillow tuck. Strangely, one is 58 x 90 and the other is 62 x 90. They are in perfect, unused condition, beautifully pieced and outline quilted every other row. These are scrap bag fabric quilts, but the fabrics have never been used.

The Dresden Plate pattern was one of the three most popular patterns during the depression era. It is a pattern loved by many and treasured to the extent that many were not used and have survived in perfect condition. This is one such quilt. It’s rare to find a Depression era quilt created from solid color fabrics. Most of the quilts from this era were scrap bag quilts. This quilt is one created from purchased fabrics. It has never been used. It could have been made for a cherished family member, a wedding present or friend who may have moved away. The blocks measure 16-3/4” square, the binding is 1/4” and the long spokes measure 4-1/2” in length. The center circle of the plate has a 3-1/2” diameter. It’s unusual that this quilt pattern is finished with scalloped edges. Such edges are seen on the Double Wedding Ring pattern. Because of the size, this quilt can easily fit a queen size bed. The background fabric is slightly off-white. It is in perfect, unused condition. The solid fabrics go well with most decors.

Each center area has quilting that is 1-1/2 inch cross-hatched on the diagonal. The open areas in the corners of that area contain shamrock shaped quilting. The joining squares measure apx. 1-7/8 inches. The eye shaped pieces joining the rings are filled with quilting of conjoining rings symbolizing the unity of marriage. This large size quilt will perfectly fit a queen size bed or cover a king size bed with a slight overhang. In perfect unused condition.

$1,400

Many times it is difficult to date a quilt comprised only of solid fabrics -- is this quilt from the 1920’s or the 1950’s? The colors lean towards the '50s and the design leans towards the '20s. If anyone has further input, please email me.

This motif of maple leaves and acorns on a taupe backing is unusual. The appliqué stitches are small and beautifully executed. Each appliqué piece is outline quilted with a second row of echo quilting. The appliqué pattern is a 14 inch square while the block is constructed of nine separately appliqued pieces, creating the illusion of a 14-1/2 inch block. However, each of these 12 appliqué motifs is placed on a whole cloth backing and not a separate piece of fabric. The blocks are beautifully joined with miniature wreaths.

The 15-1/2 inch wide border is nicely quilted with wreaths and flowers. The quilting fills all the border space as well as the body of the quilt. The separately applied 1/2 inch binding is executed by hand. The colors of this quilt are very desirable for today's decorating, and are difficult to find. This is a perfect fit for a queen size bed. There are also two sleeves sewn on the back if you choose to hang this quilt as art on your wall.

$3,500

This c.1950 Hawaiian quilt is absolutely spectacular. The appliqué and reverse appliqué are executed with almost invisible stitching. I have found quilts like this with curved edges in books, but this design is rare and unusual. Hawaiian quilts are always quilted with echo quilting, just as is executed on this beautiful piece. This size quilt will also fit perfectly on a queen size bed. Covering a king size bed with 7 inches on three sides would be a perfect venue for this piece of art. The blue border measures apx 5 inches all the way around. On this area embellishments have been added. It’s almost impossible to find a seam on this quilt, but there must be one somewhere due to the fact this fabric would have never come in this width. Fabric was only 36 inches wide back in the 50’s. The fabric must have been joined prior to cutting out the Hawaiian pattern. Vibrant and dynamic, this would be a wonderful piece of art on a wall as well as a stunning quilt on your bed.

Three blocks of different designs are combined to create what I believe is an original quilt pattern. One block is a quarter of the Blazing Star pattern block. One block is a 12 block formation, while the third block is placed around the outside of the pieced pattern. This is a rectangular block that is a combination of the other two blocks. The wide border is edged with a delicate scallop and finished with a 1/4 inch hand binding. The quilting design and the quilting are small and perfectly executed. This is an amazingly beautiful quilt that had never been used or washed. The delicious strawberry color is a focal point of today's color schemes. Now professionally hand washed by Betsey and ready for its new home, it will fit any size bed. Must be seen to fully grasp the beauty and graphics of this quilt.

Some quilts cause me to smile when I look at them. This is such a quilt. This quilt was pieced and created around 1928 and I feel it was quilted later, possibly in the 1950’s. The blocks are 11-1/2 inches square and are comprised of logs 3/4 inches in width. This quilt was created with a complete array of 1920s cotton fabrics: calicoes, plaids, strips, etc. All piecing was done by hand with the blocks joined by machine. The backing is a newer white fabric while the binding is a different white applied by machine, turned over and hand sewn in front. The quilting runs through the center of every other piece. A snail's Trail is the rarest of all Log Cabin patterns. The colors in this quilt are mostly pastels, with yellow, pinks and blues dominating.

I have heard happy tales of children cutting out fabrics for their mothers and grandmothers to help make this “quilt". This is the perfect way to use up all the fabric scraps left over from making clothing and quilts for the family. During the depression, many people made their own clothes, which left many scraps to use for this type of "quilt”. The Yo-Yo’s measure 1-3/4” in diameter. The royal blue solid color fabric creates a very graphic piece of art. In perfect, unused condition and organically hand washed by Betsey. Family name upon sale.

Q8572 Wool Embroidered Folk Art Signature Quilt
Dated 1926
72 x 82 inches
Pennsylvania
SOLD

This absolutely spectacular wool quilt invites close inspection of the wide variety of plants and animals skillfully embroidered in colorful pearl cotton. Cut from men’s suiting wool, the interior blocks measure approximately 7 x 12 inches, and the border blocks are 4 x 8 inches. All the seams were embellished with fancy stitching, and the quilt was finished with a pillowcase edging and a circa 1915 whole cloth cotton striped backing in browns and golds.

This particular quilt offers multiple clues to its origin, but no clear answers. Many of the blocks were cut with pinking shears; taken perhaps from a suiting sample book? Perhaps the quilter had access to a tailor’s remnants? Dated 1926, twelve triple initials have been included, all skillfully stitched in equal size, with nine of them ending in the letter “L”. Was this quilt made by one person who chose to include initials of loved ones, or was it perhaps a more collaborative family effort? Unusual animals such as an elk, a great horned owl, an elephant, and a labeled ibex were included among the more commonly seen domestic animals and plants. The skill and care taken in the creation of this warm, lively, and instructional piece raises the possibility that it may have been made for a special child, or perhaps as a parting gift.

While we may never know the actual history of this quilt, we can certainly recognize its value as a superior folk art piece! Please ask Betsey for more information and to see the quilt on approval in the privacy of your home.

The hand quilting on this piece is incredibly executed. One can still see the faint pencil marks for the quilting design. It is comprised of hundreds of 1-1/4 inch squares on point. Most people are more familiar with the Irish chain pattern where the piecing of that pattern is on the diagonal. The steeplechase uses the same construction, but on the vertical and horizontal. The minuscule salmon check fabric almost appears as a solid color from a distance. Completely pieced by hand, it's finished with a binding measuring only a little over 1/8 inch. The six open areas of white measure 12 inches square, the twelve rectangular blocks measure 12 x 5-1/2 inches and the four inside corner blocks are 6 inches square. Each block is heavily embellished with a whole leaf design, half leaf design and quarter leaf design. They are executed by using perfect small quilting stitches. The outside edge has a double border; one row measures 2 inches wide while the other measures 3-1/2 inches. These borders are quilted with a swag design and diagonal quilting. I find this quilt to be very sophisticated with simplicity. It appears to be unused. The woman who made this was probably from a prosperous family where she could create this masterpiece without using it as a bed cover. Professionally hand washed by Betsey and ready for a new home. This quilt could fit a twin, double or queen size bed.

Although not an actual crazy quilt, I’m including this mint condition quilt in this category because of its piecing method. Another difference is that it is 100% cotton which is not indicative of crazy quilts. The lack of batting and being light weight creates a summer quilt. It can also be used as an additional cover to your cooler season blankets. The blocks measure 12 x 6 1/2” and are in the form of a diamond. The wonderful array of colors will fit with many decor. The variety of shades of blue will make any lover of that color very happy. A blue woven plaid binding edges the quilt. In addition, this quilt can be hung in either direction depending on whether you want to bring height or width to the room. This is hand pieced, hand quilted and now professional hand washed by Betsey. The family name is available upon sale.

The stencils for these birds were created by a women whose name I can’t remember. Do you know? If you know her name please email me. I have many embroidery books, and I know I have hers, but it eludes me at the moment. The embroidered blocks measure 8 inches square and are all on point. The joining blocks are a raspberry pink. There are three connected 4-1/2 inch borders all around the outside of the quilt. First raspberry pink, then white, then raspberry pink again, ending with a 3/8 inch white applied binding. All blocks and strips are pieced by machine. The hand quilting is beautifully done. Nice, neat and straight quilting with wreath variations. The cross-hatching on the border is 2 inches apart. The quilt appears to be unused. This 82 x 82 inch quilt will fit a twin, double or queen size bed. Hand washed by Betsey and ready for its new home.

This is an unknown pattern comprised of a combination of at least three or four known patterns. In today’s world, the woman who created this quilt would probably be an engineer. A mathematical and engineering feat, this optical illusion quilt, because of the fabrics, has resulted in a very happy and positive piece of art. Pieced by machine and quilted by hand, the fabrics date from the 1920s to 1950. Each and every triangle is outline quilted by hand and some are echo quilted, also by hand. There is an 8-1/2 inch raspberry pink border with a 4 inch wide rope design quilted all around the edge. The binding measures 3/8 inch and is finished by machine. The corners of this quilt are curved, creating a wonderful effect when on a bed. This graphic quilt would also be great on a wall.

It has today’s colors, raspberry and turquoise. One pattern is a 4 patch broken dishes, one is the LeMoyne or Ohio Star, a third pattern is a variation of Jacob’s Ladder, while the forth pattern is the Ocean Wave. The backing is a whole cloth raspberry pink, enabling this quilt to become completely reversible. What a mathematical masterpiece! This quilt appears to be in perfect, unused condition, is professionally washed by Betsey and is ready for a new home.

This very happy little youth size cotton crazy quilt has been created by using blocks and sashing. Approx 3-3/4" blocks with 1" sashing.

The sashing where it joins each block has been tied. There is cotton batting inside. This quilt was originally made for a twin bed. Turned sideways it would cover and go over the edge of a queen bed. The best way I can describe this quilt is "very happy". It is completely pieced by hand. The applied binding is also by hand. What a happy way to study the 1920s fabrics. Complete original condition.

c.1930
70 x 75 inches
New Holland, PA
$1,400

This exquisitely designed quilt is all hand pieced, hand appliquéd and hand quilted. The creator has borrowed concepts from two different social backgrounds to create her piece of art. The 4 block formation was a design from the 2nd quarter of the middle part of the 19th century. The appliquéd motif is reminiscent of a Hawaiian design and may actually be a copy of such. This is beautifully appliquéd, reverse appliquéd and quilted with minuscule stitches. There are stars quilted in the raspberry pink center and around the center of the Hawaiian block. The 24 inch square blocks have an apx 2-1/2 inches of sashing around the blocks creating a visual of 4 separate blocks. The white areas around the appliqué have cross hatched stitching and the each appliqué piece has been outline quilted.

On opposite sides of the quilt the border white is 7-1/4 inches. Nine inch white borders make up the two opposing sides. The front is turned over to the back and stitched by hand for a finished binding. Turned over bindings were often used in Pennsylvania. The backing is a heavy duty cotton almost giving the appearance of linen. In apparently unused condition and now hand washed by Betsey, she is ready for a new home.

Every once in a while I find a quilt whose graphics are so spellbinding that I can't take my eyes off it. This is such a quilt. The feelings it evokes are both peaceful and dynamic. It is in impeccable, unused, unwashed, mint condition. Because of the composition it can be hung in any direction. Either way it will have a strong impact on all viewers. All work is pieced and quilted by hand. The 1/4 inch binding is also applied by hand.

Upon close examination at least two people pieced this. One part is done in the English piecing method, and the other part in the American method.

The outside border measures 9 inches, and 1/4 inch of that is a hand applied binding. The quilting in the outer gray/blue border is what is known in the southern and western parts of the country as Baptist quilting. It is executed using arcs that are approximately 3/8 inches apart. The other two borders are 3-3/4 inches wide with one row of Baptist shell quilting.

The next border is approximately 7-1/2 inches wide and comprised of two outer rows on each side that are approximately 5/8 inch wide. The diamonds on the diagonal are 1-1/2 inches wide. All pieces and outer strips are outline quilted. The blue blocks surrounding the stars are 10-1/2 x 10-1/2 inches and nicely quilted using a mirror image of the pieced star. This quilt would be an amazing art piece for your wall.

This is a beautiful Amish rendition of the evening star pattern. It's in mint condition. Pieced by machine and exquisitely hand quilted, this piece has a 3/4 inch appliqued binding finished by hand. We know this was a wedding present by the double lined quilted hearts throughout the 8 inch purple border. the thinner inside warm beige border is 2 inches wide and is quilted with an intriguing geometric pattern. The star blocks are 8-1/2 inches on point. The solid purple interior design is 48-1/2 x 61-1/2. The blocks in the nine patch center are 9 inch square. The turquoise pieces are 1 inch. the beige points are 7/8 inch wide. Light green backing. Absolutely stunning. When I look at this quilt from afar it looks two dimensional.

This exquisite Mennonite quilt is called "Joseph's Coat". The 1/3 inch turned over binding is finished by hand. The strips are machine pieced. The quilting is entirely by hand. There are at least four different quilting patterns on the bars, and the same pattern goes from top to bottom. The border diagonal bars are outline quilted. The close-up photo on my web page will give you an excellent image of the quilting detail. At one time when the quilt was folded inside out, some water hit the back of the quilt and there is now a stain on the back which can't be seen from the front. There is one dime sized stain on the front. It is in perfect condition otherwise.

This funky Bricks quilt has been machine pieced and hand quilted. Created around 1930, I think the soft subdued colors feel very comforting. Because it is 65 x 82 inches, the quilt was made for a single bed. When turned the long way it would cover a queen size bed covering 10 inches on each side. Because of the solid color fabrics it is easy to match with existing fabric choices. I like this quilt sideways, but it was too long to photograph. Professionally hand washed by Betsey.

The person who created this quilt was not only wonderful with piecing, but was also an exquisite quilter. The quilt was created with 12 inch blocks alternating with one in solid white, then a block in a pieced coral/raspberry Rob Peter to Pay Paul. The way the blocks have been placed together resulted in a third pattern; Steeplechase. We now have three patterns comprised on one quilt. The white blocks are beautifully quilted with a wreath. The center of the wreath is quilted in a pinwheel design.

After the blocks had all been pieced together, the quilter finished the quilt using diagonal and straight line quilting throughout. The 8-1/2 inch border is completely covered with rope design quilting. This quilt is edged with a scalloped border following the outline of the rope design. In addition it is fun to see the very slight pencil lines drawn for the quilting design. The edge is finished with a machine stitched pillowcase. I’m not sure why a woman with this ability would use a sewing machine. Perhaps she was quietly boasting to her friends that she owned a treadle sewing machine?

Professionally hand washed by Betsey and ready for its new home, where it will fit any bed from single to queen.

This quilt is almost perfect. There are a few flaws which show up only under close examination. There is a miniature 9 patch block and half of another one, and the sides are half of a diamond in a square. Created from the clothing fabrics of Amish children, with a few dark colors probably from adult clothing. Machine pieced, hand quilted, great graphics and colors. This is exactly how I found it, but I suspect it may have been made from an adult quilt. Professionally hand washed by Betsey.

This graphically wonderful quilt is a combination of three patterns creating a totally unusual piece of textile art. Exquisitely designed and pieced then beautifully hand quilted with small perfect stitches. This Pennsylvania quilt is in pristine unused condition. The raspberry solid pink fabrics, which I can best describe as "yummy".. .not very technical term... are used for the squares and triangles. The squares measure 2-1/2" x 2-1/2". The triangles measure 2-1/4 " x 1-1/2" x 1-1/2". By placing these patterns in a certain configuration, the creation is an optical illusion art piece. This is a totally rare and as far as I know, an original quilt pattern. This quilt has a 5-1/2 inch solid white border. The white backing is used to form a turned over binding then closed by hand. The design part of the body of the quilt is cross-hatched throughout while the snowballs are quilted in a Maltese-cross format. The border appears to be an original free flowing flower and vine design. The quilting stitches are small and even. As this quilt measures 76 x 80, it can be used for a single, double or queen size bed. Organically hand washed by Betsey and ready for your approval either as art for your wall or am amazing quilt for your bed.

Simple and happy. That’s the easiest way to describe this quilt. It is completely hand pieced and quilted except for the 3/8 inch applied binding that is stitched down using a treadle sewing machine. Because the light pink and blue chambray are solid and light colors, it’s easy to fit into an already decorated room. There are two minor areas with spots, and because of this I marked the quilt down. It is all professionally washed by me and ready for a new home.

$1,900

P.T. Barnum’s Circus is closing after 140 years, making this quilt that includes Jumbo even more collectable.

This is a rare and wonderful piece of folk art in its original youth bed size. A wide variety of wool and wool challis fabrics have been assembled into a crazy quilt, with every seam embellished in fancy hand stitching. Absolutely packed with embroidered pictures of birds, butterflies, fruit, flowers, chickens, along with a cow, dog, and a horse.

The most historically intriguing animal is the elephant labeled Jumbo on its side. Circus showman P.T. Barnum marketed Jumbo heavily in the 1880s, so it would be a reasonable possibility that this quilt was made by someone who remembered Jumbo or perhaps included the elephant because it was in one of the childs favorite books.

Finished with a 1 inch separately applied black binding embellished with a double herringbone stitch, backed with red flannel, and reverse tied with black yarn. The perfect size for hanging, this quilt retains all of its positive energy! Please ask Betsey for more details.

Hexagons measure two inches in diameter and each is expertly hand pieced to its neighbor. The pristine white ground sets off the wonderful color palette beautifully.

The backing is white cotton and the 3/8" soft yellow applied binding is the same fabric used for the mosaic centers. Hand quilting is skillfully executed and consists of outline quilting throughout. This quilt appears unused, or was used very little, and is still crisp. Professionally hand washed by Betsey it is in perfect, clean condition and ready to ship to you on approval for private viewing.

Signed: Katie Schrock

Big Valley

In mint condition this pristine and finely executed Irish Chain quilt with double border was made by Katie Schrock of Belleville, PA. She quilted both her name and the date of July 27, 1932 in the salmon border of the quilt. It is unusual for an Amish quilter to sign and/or date a quilt in this way and it was possibly the date a family member was married and was a gift. Executed in cotton sateen using solid hues of black and salmon. Piecing was done by treadle sewing machine with the quilting done by hand.

Quilting is finely executed with black thread in tiny, even stitches using diagonal cross hatch on the Irish Chain pattern. Katie stitched her name and the date among Lemon Peel stitching in the salmon border. The black border quilting consists of a twining vine with tulips. The quilting is exceptional as would be expected of an Amish quilt of this date.

The backing is solid tan cotton sateen and the applied ½ inch salmon binding is treadle machine topstitched. In mint condition this quilt can be shipped to you on approval for private viewing.

Such a fun and graphic wool quilt in a variation of the Hole in the Barn Door, or House Top, pattern. A lovely combination of both wool and cotton fabrics in bold and graphic patterns and colors. Blocks measure 8 1/2 inches square and are pieced both by hand and treadle machine. With such a variety of color in the octagon shapes the maker chose charcoal gray and black wools for each center hole and all four corners of each block. The color just leaps off the resulting black/charcoal gray ground for a stunning effect.

Entirely hand quilted with black thread in outline stitches throughout and a large 'X' stitched in each 'hole'. Backing fabric is a lovely rose/mauve cotton flannel - see detail image - with an applied 3/8 inch binding in the same fabric. This quilt is in unused condition with a few original, very small moth holes attesting to it being made mostly from wool. We have not touched them as they do not detract from the beauty of the quilt.
